Q: Is there a way to make your packaging more environmentally sustainable?

A:
The glass, plastic sleeve label and lid are all recyclable. The glass contains some recycled material and the label is made from 100% recycled plastic. We are required to use a plastic lid with a styro insert as there is currently no other type of lid (metal for example) available from a certified grade A manufacturer (the packaging has to be certified grade A as well as the milk).

A paper label, at first glance, appears more natural than the one we currently use. However, printed paper must be coated with several layers of plastic to stand up to condensation and the moisture in refrigerated cases. Plain paper is fine for dry goods but won’t work on refrigerated or frozen items. We are conscientious about keeping our packaging as environmentally sustainable as possible within the limitations of the various laws governing our industry and the aesthetic needs of our retailers.
